    Yeah, it won't effect me right away if at all depending on who buys it... Much could change though in the business

    BJ's have always been for sale. 10 years ago, when I was in A'dam, they usually went for about $10 apiece.

    This is why I subcontract, make deadly money, and if work dries up somewhere, just head down the road.

    I think that takes a slightly higher skillset than shelf stocking...

    Why, Ill have you know that I am a freelance shelf stocker, and in great demand. I only consider stocking the shelves of the rich and famous, or you know someone with a really crazy shelf system going on... for the personal challenge.

    Though it's not at all amusing when someone loses their job I had to point out something.

    I read the title of your post " F!@$ I May Be Jobless! then moused over the link on the main page and I read "bjs going up for sale" and I thought to myself "damn he's getting that desperate already and he hasn't even lost his job."

    Just thought I would share that.

    Damn near broke my mouse clicking on this one.....

    Stocking shelfs is maybe like an 8th of what i do now, I just have to make it look a certain way that the company wants, then I have produce clerks to do the majority of the stocking heh,

    Guess ya just have to kinda wait and see what happens IF it happens and what it may do or not do regarding your own job.

    My husband has gone thru one corporate buy over take over, mergers etc. over the years.

    He began work for North Central Airlines...whom then bought out 3 smaller airlines...then it became Republic Airlines...then Northwest Orient bought em and took it all over...forming a MESS of unions, pay changes, insurance changes with that merger... also moving us and our home residency all over USA with each merger, to remain employed, but he stayed employed all those years for *wtf* airline are we today ? !

    This last take over he finally decided to tell em to take their job and shove it and went self employed in RETIREMENT mode rather than work for Delta whom he called Delay Everyone Later Thru All ...flights... Airlines ! :)

    He is still working at ...his age he retired got himself licensed now, to drive brand new buses and brand new big rigs from factories where these are made, to deliver em, to their new buyers, all over the continent. :) He is having fun, working this sort of job now instead, still makin money & ...being his OWN BOSS !

    So never give up...always something or someone ELSE to work for even..for yourself ! Just gotta be creative and sometimes re equip yourself with brand new jobs skills if need be, and/or massively patient with corporate takeovers and buyouts, mergers and BS till ya had enough to tell em to shove it and go off makin money on your own !

    F&(* Unions. Nothing urks me more then unions. They protect those who should lose thier jobs. I see way too many union boys in my trade who only do so much work a day, because they have an agreed apon amount of production, so everyone looks the same.

    If your good at your job you have nothing to worry about. Unions offer too much protection, and charge way too much in rates.

    They also protect those who shouldn't.

    Nothing's perfect in this world, unfortunately.

    Yeah Queen thats the only thing im really worried about is the pay changes when these other people take over. I heard these people that made the offer acutally have money to spend so it may benefit us cause it has with the other companies they invested in but if some other random rich ******* buy it out who knows... Time will tell!
